Ta-daa Langley!

1st Willoughby Scouting Group members including (left to right) Agnus O, Joey Rizzuto, and Griffin Boutilier held a Christmas tree chipping and bottle drive event at Willoughby Elementary on Saturday. It was the second of two such fundraisers, with the first one taking place Dec. 28.

The group accepted donations for both drop off and pick up services for Willoughby residents.

There were more than 350 trees chipped during the two weekends.

The Township of Langley supplied a tree chipper and arranged to have employees volunteer their time for the two fundraisers.

Funds raised will be used towards camps, outdoor activities, badges, equipment purchases, and supplies. 1st Willoughby Scouting Group accepts year-round registrations for girls and boys ages five and up. For more information or to volunteer email ksulymka@shaw.ca.
